This page documents all the programs that interest me. In a sense this is sort of like a bookmark of programs to use, or at least give a shot.

Web

  • Dreamweaver: This nonfree website editor is unparalleled, there is nothing in the web or market that seems to be able to compete with this program (especially opensource unfortunately).

Document Editing

  • MDPad(Windows): Portable markdown editor. What I like about this, is that it loads markdown files fast, and just gets the job done. Left pane text view, right pane html view. Html export. link
  • DownMarker(Windows): Primarily a viewer for markdown. Has a nifty editor, but preview annoyingly resets on every keystroke (as of 7th of feb). No html export however. Good renderer makes this suitable as a markdown viewer. For editing, still recommend MDPad. link
  • MultiMarkdown(Windows): My preferred generator for markdown content.link

Maths

  • SpeQ Mathematics: Quite useful little sheet calculator link

Arts / Photo editing

  • Inkscape: Free vector editing program. Very useful when doing quick editing of SVG files. In fact, the background of this website was done in SVG. link
  • 1bitter: Useful if you want really small b&w gifs link
  • Smooth Draw: Used in Khan’s Acadamy recordings. Don’t forget in menu to select ‘Option’ then tick enable ‘eraser tip of pen’. link

Amateur Radio

  • Fldigi: Digital modem program for multiple platforms including windows. Very useful for decoding PSK31 and Hell etc… link

Analysis and Investigation and Low Level Tools

  • PhysMo(Win/Mac/Lin): Might be useful in analysis of motion in videos.link

  • x64_dbg(Win): An open-source x64/x32 debugger for windows. Link

  • Tera Term: Good for use with serial console, has serial modem support. link

Coding

Sublime

Its a good text editor with mass selection editing capability. My typical settings is:

{
  "font_size": 11,
  "rulers":
  [
    80
  ],
  "tab_size": 2,
  "translate_tabs_to_spaces": true,
  "trim_trailing_white_space_on_save": true
}
